England Coast Path: Easington to Filey Brigg

Find out about the progress of improving coastal access - including maps, process and timing - in North Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire.

Map of the stretch

Natural England has begun to investigate how to improve coastal access along a 95 km stretch of coast in North Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire between Easington and Filey Brigg.

Officers from North Yorkshire County Council and the East Riding of Yorkshire Council are providing expert local advice and helping to ensure there is full consultation with local interests during the development of the route.

Stage of progress

Stage 5: Open

On 18 August 2020, the Secretary of State announced his decision to approve a stretch of the England Coast Path in North Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire between Easington and Filey Brigg. Natural England’s report to the Secretary of State is still available to view.

Natural England will publish further details of the approved route in due course.

Next steps

Work is now underway to prepare the new stretch of coast path for public use. The first step is to contact owners and occupiers of the affected land to discuss the design and location of any new infrastructure which is needed, such as signs and gates.

When preparations are complete, new access rights will come into force along the route and adjoining spreading room.

For further advice see the detailed guide below.
